Photographer question

Discussion in 'Jokes and Humour' at netrider.net.au started by Scumbag, Aug 2, 2005.

  1. This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally.

    The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which you will have to make a decision.

    Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous. Please scroll down slowly and give due consideration to each line.

    You are in Florida, Miami to be specific. There is chaos all around you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding. This is a flood of biblical proportions. You are a photojournalist working for a major newspaper, and you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster.

    The situation is nearly hopeless. You're trying to shoot career-making photos. There are houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing under the water. Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.

    Suddenly you see a man floundering in the water. He is fighting for his life, trying not to be taken down with the debris. You move closer . . somehow the man looks familiar.

    You suddenly realise who it is. It's George W. Bush!

    At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take him under.

    You have two options--you can save the life of G.W. Bush or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the world's most powerful men.

    So here's the question, and please give an honest answer:

    Would you select high contrast colour film, or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white?
  2. Hee Hee..luv it :)

    Black and white.
  3. :LOL: :LOL: :LOL: Not the question i was expecting .
  4. With Nikon D2X in hand, why i'd shoot in RAW.
    Actually, i'd get the 15 shots per second as he got hauled down there!

    On the other hand, one of those hanging on for dear life moments could be financially very profitable. Strike a deal for a small island in the middle of the pacific then 'consider' pulling him out.
  5. :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:


    Cheers 8)
  6. I'd try for the sepia shot thanks :D
  7. I'd build a sculpture of it in banana skins!
  8. I put my foot on his head...what I didn't say that...yes you did my precious, you did...we hate little hobbitses
  9. Finally something different to the Eddie McGuire versions I keep getting sent (me being a Collingwood supporter and all).
